Contents of the UPDATE.DOC file



It seems quite a few people are confused about how to update to a new
version of WWIV. It is relatively simple. You do not need to erase all
your files or messages or anything like that. How to update:

1. Copy >ALL< of the new files into your main BBS directory. By this I
mean all the .PAS and .MSG files. SECLEV.DAT will probably not be changed,
and the documentation is for your information only.

2. Copy the .MSG files into the GFILES directory, such as "COPY *.MSG
GFILES".

3. Delete the .MSG files out of the main BBS directory, so you don't have
them sitting there for no reason, by saying (from the MAIN BBS directory,
not gfiles) "DEL *.MSG".

4. Compile the BBS, forgetting about "INIT.PAS". Look in the
documentation, and it will tell you which files need to be compiled, and
whether those are .CHN or .COM files.

5. You >DO NOT< need to run the initialization program. Any new files
which were not present on your older version will be created by the BBS
program when it is run for the first time.
